Asian Pacific American Municipal Officials (APAMO)

Asian Pacific American Municipal Officials (APAMO) is a constituency group whose mission is to provide Asian Pacific American municipal officials and their colleagues with a forum to share ideas and develop leadership experience.

It also serves as a vehicle for members to discuss problems and explore solutions, debate policy issues, and contribute to the success of American cities and towns.  APAMO members are eager to share their experiences in government with other Asian Pacific Americans and local officials.  APAMO has a Board of Directors as well as general members.  It was established at the National League of Cities in 1985.


APAMO welcomes new and returning members each year.  The easiest way to join APAMO is by paying annual dues and fees via the November Congress of Cities registration process.  Information about joining, including dues and fees, is available on the NLC Congress of Cities registration form.  Dues and fees can be paid online in conjunction with the conference registration fee.  Prospective new members may also join throughout the year by filling out the membership application located in the APAMO membership brochure and submitting it to NLC via its instructions.
